Description Remi Collet 2013-07-26 14:52:04 UTC
Spec URL:
The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function
when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout
has been reached. libevent is meant to replace the asynchronous event
loop found in event driven network servers. An application just needs
to call event_dispatch() and can then add or remove events dynamically
without having to change the event loop.

This package is only for EPEL (fedora already have version 2.0).
libevent2 can be installed beside libevent (no conflicts)
libevent2-devel cannot (allowed by Guidelines, "compat" case)

I prefer to submit version 2.0.18 (as in fedora), and will update to last version (2.0.21) later (currently FTBFS in rawhide). ABI is stable according to

Comment 1 Remi Collet 2013-07-26 14:54:44 UTC
Stupid of me... php-pecl-event requires php 5.4 so is not suitable for EPEL.

Forgive this one.
